Special Forces Faction mod [SFF] that adds the Polish GROM- Also known as 'Thunder' and 'Silent Unseen' GROM are Poland's most elite Special Forces unit.
The Polish GW GROM ( Grupa Reagowania Operacyjno-Manewrowego) are Poland's most elite Special Forces unit, and were founded in 1990, and trained by US Delta Force, US Navy SEAL Teams, and the British Special Air Service. Named after Poland's WW2 special forces unit, the 'Silent Unseen' and have since garnered a reputation, even among other international Special Forces Units as being one of the best units in the world.
The Polish GROM in this mod are accurate to a 2011-2016 timeframe, based on photgraphs and sources, with weapons and equipment they used at that time. The Heckler & Koch HK416 forms their primary rifle, in both CQB 10 Inch versions and the standard 14.5 version. The M14 EBR serves as their DMR due to being in their inventory at the current time (2016) with the M249 SAW being their autorifleman weapon. They have heavier firepower on a squad level compared to other SF units as they carry a Carl-Gustav M3 lauchers, which can be used in both anti-infantry and anti-armor roles. They wear Multicam uniforms and OD/ Tan equipment, and a cosiderable number of their weapons have been spray-camo'ed in the field, which I have seen in photographs of GROM in Afghanistan.
The GROM have a dedicated Sniper-Spotter team, wearing a ghille suit with ATACS-AU underclothes, giving them precision supporting fire, recon or for HVT assassination.
The GW GROM lack the heavier air assets of other SF units, instead having a light Mh-6 Littlebird for transport or insertions, and having the Oshkosh M-ATV for vehicle support, with a mounted M2 50. Cal. They have a light Zodiac craft for water-bourne operations. All vehicles have real life names and designations.
Faction has full Editor, Zeus and ALiVE support (faction name GM ) Also supports ACE3 Medical system.
